Abstract

The current competitive environment requires a fast response and anticipation to market opportunities and a correspondingly fast time-to-market. This produces several implications for corporate organizations. They must be able to quickly reconfigure their resources when necessary; they must have an agile strategy development process; and they must have an efficient product development process. This invention consists of a business method and information system architecture based on the open-source paradigm. This method and architecture can be applied to (a) the development of business strategies and (b) the management of product development processes.
